Sopet Rising aka Wen Renpet

Blessed Wen Renpet! (I'm not sure of the proper greeting.)

Wen Renpet is the 1st day of the Egyptian solar new year. Ancient Egyptians used the heliacal rising of Sopdet / Sirius to predict when the Nile would flood. The next new moon (8/17/12) is Tepy Renpet, the 1st day of the lunar new year.


  1. I wonder how accurate their predictions were. I wanted to let you know that I’ve nominated you for two blog awards! http://www.thedomesticpagan.net/2012/08/iblog-awards.html
